Lake Adenauer

Yesterday a storm front developed directly over Berlin.
For over two hours it rained cats and dogs as we watched from our office windows. There was cloud to ground lightning (which is rare for Germany), and lots of of it! All it all that part of the storm was exciting enough. But soon we started hearing the unmistakable sound of cars driving through LOTS of water, so we looked outside. Lo and behold there was water standing in the streets overflowing the curbs in many places.

As we watched incredulously cars would fly through the intersection, splashing people passing on bikes and standing on the sidewalks.
